As a show of our gratitude and continued support, we would like to take a moment to spotlight our newest coalition members so far this summer, and highlight a few of our new partners.
Devika Bulchandani, Caroline Clarke, Alyssa Milano, Bamby Salcedo, Kamilah Willingham, Fran Zone Join ERA Coalition, Fund for Women’s Equality Boards
Over 104 years ago, Silent Sentinels first came to Washington, D.C., to demand the vote. Now Silent Sentinels are back – to finish the job of achieving equality in America by certifying the ERA. A delegation of ERA Minnesota Silent Sentinels are in Washington, D.C. as we speak. We’ll join compatriots around the country to hold daily vigil in front of the DOJ to tell AG Garland to rescind the ERA Barr memo.
Democratic lead sponsor Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) addressed live the ERA Coalition/Fund for Women’s Equality on the status of SJ Res 1, the Senate joint resolution to remove the time limit imposed on the ERA. He was joined by Republican lead sponsor Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and bipartisan Senate cosponsors of the resolution, who shared recorded remarks; Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), and Senator Angus King (I-ME).
Former Republican state Representative Steve Andersson and activist and writer Gloria Steinem join together to write an OpEd on a principle that is basic to our democracy – equality under the law!
The ERA Coalition is growing from 130 partner orgs to 500. We are inviting new partners to join the ERA Coalition to expand our diversity and build a broader, stronger movement.
